I started off this year with wanting to do a tour of the HRE. I started in Bavaria, because I had material that matched a portrait. And people have been after me to do something based on an actual painting. Now that we have that out of the way, I want to do more interesting clothing. I want to work on a couple of lower class, tross outfits. Not the Saxon dresses folks seem to keep wanting to pass off as tross. I am looking for the folks with the baskets and the daggers. I am trying to de-upper class, cause you can't work in the pretty stuff.

I've got several different images of working wear that I really like:

I am especially interested in whatever the white hood thing is. And I am fascinated by the short socks. I like how simple some of these clothes are. And I really love the full aprons. I have one that I made last year, and it is by far my most favorite. And it is in a pic that is not of a birthing scene.I was hoping for more sleveless options (rather than attached to the over dress). I am more likely to push up my sleeves while working.  The fitted sleeves make it difficult to do that.

The conundrum is the mix and match of styles. I can see the various regional groups. Would it really matter what the women were wearing? Or would they be more reflective of the region they were from.

One thing I will caution you is not to mix up decades too much. The Triumph is from 1515 and most of the wooducts are 1535, not sure about the peasant woman at the beginning. The white "hoods" you see in the Triumph aren't hoods, they are veils, Bundlein.

Right. No mixing time periods. 20 years is a big difference.

But in the Triumph, we get the wide mix of regions. Is that just for this manuscript? Or would they really be that mixed?

These are three housemaids having a conversation, none of them are Trossfrau. These would certainly be the types of women to leave their jobs and become part of the Tross, but none of these women ARE Tross in this woodcut.

Ok. Not tross. Need to move this to generic lower class.

I may just need to create women with rakes, lower class as I am finding a bunch of them. And they look super functional.
